Beyond The Buzzer:
Blazers GM Neil Olshey said he has made zero calls to other teams about Aldridge. He did say he has fielded one inquiry from another team, but it was more exploratory in nature, that team feeling the Blazers out. And he said he has no plans to make any future calls about Aldridge as February approaches.
That doesn’t mean Olshey doesn’t expect to get more calls. He senses the league might still perceive the Blazers to be a team willing to give up talent to gain assets, much like it did last March when the previous regime traded Gerald Wallace and Marcus Camby for picks and cap relief.
That is no longer the method of operation. Olshey has identified a core: Aldridge, Nicolas Batum, Damian Lillard and Matthews.
“The players on our roster who are no-brainers,’’ Olshey said, referring to that core, “are not going anywhere.’’

ALL HE CAN STANDS
With the Brooklyn Nets struggling as of late, Gerald Wallace has taken issue with how his teammates are responding to the slide and made his feelings known.
The New York Knicks are getting healthier. And that's frightening for the rest of the Eastern Conference. The team has been dominant as it is, but they still have players like Amare Stoudemire and Marcus Camby returning from injury. In fact, Camby returned last night. Coach Mike Woodson told reporters just before game time that Camby would be available and in the lineup. He...
When the Nets dramatically overhauled their roster this summer, the plan wasn’t to put together a .500 team. But that’s exactly what they are after last night’s 108-93 loss to the Bucks dropped them to 14-14 this season.
“We’re a way better team than what our record is,” Gerald Wallace said. “I’m [bleeping ticked] off about us losing, and especially the way we’re...
Marcus Camby returned on Tuesday for the first time in 12 games after dealing with plantar fasciitis.
Gerald Wallace‘s gift for Kevin Garnett this Christmas came in the form of a fistful of shorts — a present KG wasn’t too thrilled to receive.
Wallace and Garnett had a rather heated exchange during the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s matinee clash between the Nets and Celtics. Garnett tried to hold Wallace up after the Brooklyn forward was fouled in the paint, but instead of...
There has to be a rule somewhere about how long you can hold onto a man’s shorts. Gerald Wallace grabbed a handful of Kevin Garnett’s in Brooklyn Nets/Boston Celtics Christmas Day match-up. Garnett took exception when Wallace wouldn’t let go after regaining his balance. It was the kinda move that can start a brawl, which [...]

Kevin Garnett and Gerald Wallace both received a technical in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s Christmas Day game after a minor scuffle. Wallace grabbed onto Garnett’s shorts following a shot attempt, something Garnett didn’t respond well to:
The Nets had much higher hopes for their inaugural season in Brooklyn. With a current record of 14-14 and locker room mumblings from Deron Williams saying that he was used to being coached a different way. Plus Gerald Wallace calling his teammates out about their attitude during the losing streak. The Nets have announced the [...]

New York Knicks vs. Los Angeles Lakers
The Knicks will start their three game road trip out west with a visit to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers in part of the NBA’s five Christmas Day games. The game will feature the top two scorers in the NBA in Carmelo Anthony and Kobe Bryant going head to head on national television. Here are some things to...
The NBA was in full force yesterday for Christmas, and pretty much all the games were worth a watch. In addition to the joyfulness of the Holiday, there were also a few scraps. Tempers ran high in the Celtics vs. Nets game when Gerald Wallace decided to grab Kevin Garnett's shorts after an offensive rebound. The two were broken up quickly, but the play non the less was...
For Christmas, at least, the Celtics played well. Jared Sullinger solidified himself as my hero, Rajon Rondo continued to show more aggression as a scorer, Gerald Wallace may or may not have wanted to brawl, Deron Williams (and Joe Johnson) used to be a lot better, and I don’t know if I said this before, but Sullinger’s my hero.I would write more, but I’m going to see Les Miserables...
